I don't say the JFA shouldn't have a traditional jambalaya cooking competition. But how about having an open category so folks can actually have something good to eat?

A true Gonzales jambo doesn't have tomatoes or bananas

Are they really IN it? I gave a baked banana recipe I serve as a side with bbq. Love it.
That recipe looks strange regardless.

Where is the jambalaya? I see a plate of rice, shrimp on top, covered with tomato/Creole sauce, and bananas on the side. No jamba.

The recipe, from NY in 1958, shows the bananas are fried in butter and lightly salted. Someone try this and get back to us.

Are you going to post the recipe or just leave us hanging?

That doesn’t even look like any jambalaya I’ve ever seen

Came in to post the same thing. I made a 2 gallon pot of jambalaya last night and it looks NOTHING like that crap.

Plain white rice, what looks like boiled shrimp and some red sauce crap tossed on top-------------and bananas around the plate like it's some sort of decorative addition to make it look appealing. Failed miserably.

When I see bananas added with the word Jambala, I think Hispanic/ Cuban food. I do enjoy Hispanic food, I enjoy Congri and plantains, I enjoy chorizo and other items. I think if I was to invent a Hispanic type jambalaya I would put it together with the ingredient I have mentioned and possibly a few more. Just saying.

I'd have no issues if it was just called Shrimp Creole and served with plantains.

But it's clearly labelled jambalaya and the recipe says to use bananas.

i do a really good "Caribbean" Jambalaya.


Cuban Sausage
Jerk chicken
papaya, mango, and pineapple chunks
equal parts juiceof the three listed above and chicken stock
small amount of trinity



The meat is spicy as hell, but the sweetness of the fruit and juice absorbed by the rice makes a perfect counterbalance.



remember this: A Jambalaya is just a rice dish with shite thrown in, usually as a way to use leftovers before they go bad. Its the casserole of Louisiana and the Caribbean.

The only rule is this: rice mist be the base.
